June 11, 1013: Pow! Right To The Moon...CableSystem Style

 

I added fourteen more ads today, all from August 1985, plus six more Random Pages gallery additions, from Peach Sections of The Blade. There's a Tuesday, 8/13/85 story by Tom Ensign, “Channel 30 Plans To Start Broadcasting In Stereo” and also includes several other local TV items. Next is a Saturday, 8/17/85 AP story, “Boom In TV Animation Brings Back 'The Jetsons'” which is followed by a Wednesday, 8/28/85 story, “Buckeye Adding USA Network, Ending Lifetime.” There's also a Thursday, 8/29/85 story, “Earle Bruce Call-In Show Set By WOHO” and a Friday, 8/30/85 story, “TU To Show 15 Basketball, Football Games On Cable.” And there's a Saturday, 8/31/85 story by Seymour Rothman, “Biggest Upset Of U.S. Open Is USA Cable Over CBS.” There are no ads today for channels 11, 13 and 24, and just one addition to the PBS gallery for channel 30, a Monday, 8/5/85 ad for TV30/FM91 Day at the Toledo Zoo, which included a live simulcast of Music Under the Stars, from the Zoo Amphitheatre. There are two additions to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, including a Sunday, 8/11/85 TV Tab ad for a CableSystem / Showtime / Honeymooners / Imperial Lanes contest. There's also a Thursday, 8/29/85 ad for a Showtime / Disney Channel special offer (Jackie Gleason as Ralph Kramden, Mickey Mouse). There are also three additions to the Radio Station Ads gallery, including a Tuesday, 8/6/85 ad for a Toledo Mudhens vs. Syracuse baseball game on WHFD-FM 95.9. That game featured an appearance by Max Patkin, “The Clown Prince of Baseball.” There's also a Wednesday, 8/14/85 ad for “Mitch Ryder Live!” at the Rally by the River, sponsored by WIOT-FM 104,7, followed by a Friday, 8/30/85 ad for '85 ToledoFest, on UT's radio station, WERC-FM 88.3 (106 Cable FM). You'll find more WERC stories and ads here. There are also two additions to the Vintage Cable Ads gallery, a Wednesday, 8/14/85 ad for the 20th Annual German-American Festival, and a Tuesday, 8/20/85 ad for “Disney on Parade” at NorthTowne Square. September 1985 ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
